I came to China primarily to spend time with my relatives. Secondarily, I wanted to improve upon my Chinese and learn how to read and write. So I enrolled with CSA to do just that. Well, it turned out to be much more than just that. In addition to classes, CSA helped me with everything from all the little logistics (cell phone, airport transportation) to the intriguing sites and eateries that aren't necessarily in the tour guide books to enrolling in special interest classes (Traditional Chinese Medicine) that I could never find on my own. And the Chinese classes were the best. I didn't expect to have so much fun with fellow classmates and meet new friends from all over the world. CSA really made my trip an incredible experience. I was so sad to leave, not just my relatives, but the folks at CSA and my classmates. Thank you so much for all you did for me!
